Visitors-to-Canada Travel Medical Insurance

Do you have a close friend or family member visiting Canada from their home country? You may want to check with them to ensure they have the proper international travel medical insurance in place for the duration of their stay. The last thing you want to have happened is for them to get sick or injured after arriving in Canada and have to pay their own medical expenses, including prescription drugs, out of pocket.

Our Visitors-to-Canada Travel Medical plans provide coverage up to $150,000 so that they can enjoy their stay here with peace of mind. These health insurance plans are also great for foreign students studying in Canada for a period of time or those waiting for their BC Medical (Canadian Government Health Insurance) to come through. Often referred to as Visitor Visa Insurance by people visiting Canada, Visitors-to-Canada insurance has grown significantly in popularity and importance in recent years.
